scale formula

scale counts are sometimes presented in the form of a formula. The number of scales above the lateral line is given above as the numerator, the number below the lateral line as the denominator under the line; before and after this fraction are given respectively the lowest and highest number of scales in the lateral line, e.g. 44 910/1214 48, means 44 to 48 scales in the lateral line, 910 scales above the lateral line (not including the middorsal scale) and 1214 scales below the lateral line. Sometimes the count is given as L. transv. 9/14 which means 9 scales above and 14 below the lateral line. Sometimes also given as 9+70+11, meaning 9 above the lateral line, 70 in the lateral line, 11 below the lateral line
